2007-04-05 [xido]: added a p in vampire. Good info.
Can I ask who the artist of the Elfwood work is? If it is not your own, it could use a reference to the artist/work in the text. This is of course, only input. ;)
2007-04-13 [Sue Falkenkralle]: thanks. no it's not my own, good idea :)
2007-04-22 [Jitter]: Actually Erinyes don't drink the blood of their victims. They are the avengers of wrong, what today would be thought as guilt. A greek equivalent creature of the vampire would be Vrikolakas and it comes from folklore rather than Mythology :)
2007-05-23 [Artsieladie]: I added an "r" to "other" & a capital "T" on "They". Curious...whic
2007-05-24 [xido]: Thank you very much. I would also be curious to see a source or two cited for this info, since I am only aware of the Erinyes from D&D's creatures...
2007-05-24 [Artsieladie]: *nods* :)
2007-07-07 [Sue Falkenkralle]: Das Schwarze Netz is often a good source, but since we're talking about mythology there are probably serveral versions. The one I know is that the Erinyes punish mostly incest and matricide and drink the blood of their victims, probably because those comitted crimes gainst "their own blood". But like I said, that's just one version.
I haven't found anything about Vrikolakas, but if someone has he/she should add it, I think :)
